Marlon Wayans will be 'Living Biblically'

Think you can follow every Commandment and every other little rule in the Bible? Marlon Wayans does.

Wayans will lead an adaptation of A.J. Jacobs' 2007 book "The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

That means Wayans will have to imitate Jacobs in not only loving his neighbor as himself, but also not shaving, avoiding all mention of pagan gods, stoning adulterers and more. Though Wayans has tackled some dramatic roles, his involvement indicates the book's humorous side will be played up.

The star will also produce.

Wayans, 36, can next be seen as Ripcord in this year's "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra."
